Rocky Knob Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This hike follows the Rocky Knob Trail from Ridge Road south over Sier Hill to a saddle beneath Rocky Knob. From the saddle, the hike descends into a hollow and follows an old Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) road back to the trailhead. An additional spur leads through the lower hollow from the junction with the CCC road out to a trailhead on Birch Run Road to the south.

If you have any doubts about what mountain laurel looks like, this hike should alleviate those doubts forever. In late May and early June, the woods are filled with blossoms unlike any place I have seen before. During the summer, the forest is thick with the under-story. Come autumn, the terrain begins to thin out a little bit and the trees put on a brilliant display of color. This hike begins by following an old roadbed south from the parking area."
